Product Overview

Our wild Pinyon Pine essential oil is a limited edition, exquisite artisan distillation of needles and twigs ethically harvested from wild grown Pinus edulis trees; this gorgeous specialty offering displays smooth, fresh conifer and woody/resinous body notes with a peculiar butter-like back note and extremely fine, peach/floral top notes of delicate diffusiveness. A mild terpenic note mingles with the peach/floral aspect throughout its long dry down. The care, respect and skills employed in the harvesting and extraction processes are clearly reflected in the quality of this unique plant essence. (Also known as Piñon Pine)

Pinyon Pine trees grow at elevations between 3,000 – 10,000 feet[1] and are native to, and occur abundantly in, the Four Corners area of the US – Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico with a range that has expanded into the surrounding states and Northern Mexico.[2] These slow-growing trees are commonly over 750 years old, with some reaching the age of 900 years or more.[3]

Coniferous trees in general – Pine, Spruce, Fir – are the guardian trees of our planet with their specific refreshing, cleansing constituents. The primary components present in Pinyon Pine are a group of monoterpene hydrocarbons and bornyl acetate with many other constituents in smaller amounts.[4] In the higher boiling fractions, chemists have been able to identify ethyl caprylate, a compound responsible for the characteristic fruity fragrance of Pinyon Pine.[5]

Due to its relatively recent introduction into aromatherapy practice, there is limited information regarding the attributes of Pinyon Pine essential oil; it is generally recognized as having a chemical composition and properties similar to Scotch Pine essential oil, but seems closer to Fir oils, particularly due to the sweetness of fruity esters that do not appear in most Pinus species. Pinyon Pine is just sublime in a diffuser – bringing the outdoors in – especially during the winter months.

By far the best Pinon Pine distillation

Rating

When I really love an essential oil, I purchase many varieties of it in order to get the best. Since I have some really exceptional Pinyon pine oils already, I was hesitant to buy this one, but saw the word Artisanal and had to try it. This is the most carefully crafted and expertly distilled Pinyon pine oil I've ever gotten. It has more top note and a much rounder scent than all of the others. Magnificent! Bravo!

Perfection

Rating

If I only had one EO the rest of my life, this would be it. I wear it as perfume, and I have it in my sleep rotation. I alternate my sleep oils, and I use this one when I really need good rest.

Review by Leann 2/5/2020

Calamus-like and persistent

Rating

This is a great "archival oil" to reference the scent of Pinion. It has more Calamus overtones than pine and is an olfactory jewel in its own right as such.

Most Vibrant Pine Smell Ever

Rating

Until I received this special artisan masterpiece called 'Pinyon Pine', I really didn't like the turpentine smell of pine. This one smells so vibrant, fresh and fruity-- breathtaking. This is extremely rare and, imo, the blood diamond of all pine essential oils. I have used this rare pine EO in my body/beard oil and forest colognes. This is hands down the best pine I've ever sampled. Thanks EB for broadening my horizons and splurging on the rare find. Corey E.

Something special

Rating

Wow, this oil is amazing! I grew up in New Mexico and have always loved the smell of Pinyon, it is something I have missed terribly since leaving the state. Smelling this oil brings me back home and reminds me of my childhood in Jemez. When I first opened the bottle I was surprised by the fruity sweetness, but on dry down (and in dilution), it smells exactly like the sap of the Pinyon I grew up with, sweet, woody, slightly nutty - there really is nothing like it! My absolute favorite pine, a true delight that I can't recommend highly enough.
